Same eyes, though.

Still not as creepy as Pennywise. I still see Tim Curry running up to the lamppost in that photograph that comes to life and just the memory of it creeps me out no end.

Nothing will ever beat Pennywise climbing up the lamppost and LOOKING. RIGHT. AT. ME.

Still gives me goosebumps and the creeps.
